Sony already has a date set for The Amazing Spider-Man 2

08.05.2011

We're still all trying to be convinced that a reboot of Spider-Man is a good idea, but Sony is so confident in their decision making skills and upcoming film, that they've not only greenlit a sequel, but they've picked a date for it as well.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is set to premiere May 2, 2014, making it the furthest out dated feature I've actually heard of. Here's what they had to say to Deadline about the announcement.

"I think it speaks volumes about our confidence in what we are seeing on the new film and our desire to move quickly on the next installment."

I guess they've liked what they saw, and for all of our sake's, I hope they're right. There are so many superhero projects these days, it's hard to imagine the majority are going to be worthwhile, and I wouldn't say no to a good film, even if it's been done three times in the last decade already.

Extra Tidbit: I do like Garfield, and I wouldn't mind a less campy tone. But still, going to be hard to convince me this was worth it.

Well that's logical...
Sony rebooted the franchise, among other reasons, to get the budget down (from the $200M + of SM3 to a little over $80M for this one, I've heard), so MATHEMATICALLY, if you count domestic and foreign Box Office, they CAN NOT not make money with this...
Therefore, it's obvious they'll go for a sequel so soon...
And the fact they don't want to loose the right for it, of course !

I guess we'll see what happens. I read an article that Denis Leary is signed on for both of the sequels already.

Me thinks sony is still just wanting to keep the rights to Spidey, consider me in the loop of about my doubts about this film, I found the first trailer very unimpressive.

The old days are gone...

Ah I remember the days when studios would only announce their sequels after the original films made a lot of money. Now we are such a predictable group of moviegoers. They know we will flock to this like sheep and give them lots of money. It reminds of the scene in "Pumping Iron" where before the competition, Schwarzenegger tells Ferrigno that he had already called his mom to tell her he won.

Well, obviously this film is gonna be a hit, but I think this may push Sony into the territory of arrogance. Do we even know this new Spiderman will work? I mean, a sequel is inevitable when taking into account that the legions of Spidey fans will flock to see it no matter what. But still, can't Sony just get through promoting this one before talking about a sequel? Cause if they don't care enough about this film in and of itself, why should I?

Not Surprised

Of course they're going to make a sequel. Every superhero film is intended to have sequels. Hopefully The Amazing Spider-man is actually good...hopefully.

I think (hope) Spiderman will deliver, but securing release dates has become more like purchasing reality properties....

I love your use of the word 'we', Tassi. Yes, come on. Sit down. Be part of the crew. You're so cool.

The majority of you crack me up. Anyone giving The Amazing Spider-Man the benefit of the doubt gets negative feedback. Clearly, the cool thing to do is to make snide remarks long before a movie is released. Honestly, hasn't there been a movie you trashed early on only to find out that you were simply being a douche bag because the flick was actually good once you finally sat down to watch it? But hey, that's just me. I come here to read about flicks and look forward to their release not to

That's just mine.

I agree mostly. I don't get the whole 'is it worth it' argument ... honestly, I don't give a rat's ass if they remade it every couple years as long as I get an entertaining movie out of it. I feel like people who just go into things with a negative attitude aren't giving films a fair shake AND robbing themselves of a good time at the movies.

I don't see why this is a bad thing. Clearly they rebooted Spider-Man with the intention of having sequels, and it can only mean they like what they see if they're moving ahead THIS early. Sounds like they think they have a winner.

Already?

Wow, I just LOVED THE FIRST ONE can't wait for the second. Sony pump the brakes. Is the fact that the studio is already selling us a sequel supposed to get me excited about the first one I haven't seen yet?
